    Yes, the more a plane weighs, the lower it flies – well known fact.

    It is when you’re only a couple of miles off the end of the runway

    Someone’s ordered a chainlink from CRC.
    If we have awards at end of year for best post then this is the winner
    Nothing in the next 6 months will come close
    Genuine laugh out loud moment, even the non biking long suffering with postman and crc boxes wife was chuckling

    Absolutely, a classic smart-ass one-liner. Excellent work. 😆

    Does anyone know what time it flew out?

    I walked up to a local viewing point (sad I know), which overlooks the Cheshire plains and the airport, nothing that big flew out around 9 am.

    Mmm – very large Russian plane arriving for unknown purposes. Fugitive on the loose possibly with the help of the Russians.

    Very large and difficult to hide plane not seen departing.

    All getting suspicious this…

    You may retire into the STW Hall of Fame lounge.

    10.00 am – That’s good, ‘cos I saw it through the binoculars. Wasn’t too sure as it was small with me being far away. Sadly low cloud today, as it disappeared very quickly.

    Well,
    it appears that the MASSIVE plane never took off this morning, as they couldn’t get the paperwork sorted in order to allow it back into Russia.
    A bit odd seeing as it’s from Russia.

    Not sure what you saw this morning then Bunnyhop?

    Bunnyhop you might have seen the airbus thingy from bae in hawerdon,
    I think they look similar with two tail planes.

    I love seeing A380s hanging in the sky over London. Brilliant 🙂

    Sussed it…

    Edward Snowden is the cargo, complete with a full size house, in a full size street.
    As it is airside he is technically ‘nowhere’.
    He failure to relocate to ‘somewhere’ is said to be due to the inability of the ParcelFarce operative to locate ‘somewhere’ on his sat nav.

    Some, indeed all of the above may not bear any resemblance to truth.

    Back in the real world – as a kid I walked though one of those things. Bonkers huge.
    EDIT – sorry -actually. no. it was one of it’s little brothers i walked though (at an airshow) even that was bonkers huge

    As I said I was very far away and it was a whopper that I saw. Thanks MartynS, glad you made me realise I’m not going mad 🙂

    Am so excited now and am going out again tomorrow, here’s hoping the sky is a little less misty and without the low cloud.

    ormancheep – will you be able to confirm this later tonight or early tomorrow? Thanks

    Still parked up this evening when I was bussed off the Dublin flight. Got within 100 metres of it but the smart phone pictures came out rubbish.

    Bunnyhop, keep an eye on the Manchester airport twitter feed. Should give you any updates on there.
    Edit… And here: pistonheads

    OrmanCheep – Thanks.

    More misty and cloudier than yesterday, so I think I’ll be lucky to see anything from the distance I’m at.
    Going to get there for 10.00 am.

    Edit – Taking off at 12 Noon, runway 2, heading out towards Knutsford according to the MIA twitter feed.

    Did anyone see it?
    Flight was delayed by about an hour.

    On a side note, I saw two Apache gunships yesterday low flying from the RAF base, went right over me whilst I rode home from work.

    Its like an airshow round here today.

    F15s al over the place. Apache helicopter. Merlin helicopter. And the daily Isle of Man/STaverton shuttle 🙂
